Time Out Says

There’s no doubt about it, the balcony of Zafran, with a view of Dubai Marina, is a romantic spot. That’s if you can visit when there aren’t children running about, as this is also a popular spot for families. From a simple to follow menu, there are plenty of enticing options that arrive well-presented. The dahee kebab appetiser (deep-fried yoghurt dumplings) is one of the standout dishes, as is the papdi chaat, a sweet yoghurt with pomegranate and tamarind chutney. More substantial dishes that also shine are the fish tikka, which comes with chunks of white fish flavoured with chilli, turmeric and mustard oil. We also recommend the saag gosht, an aromatic mutton curry with fennel, coriander and ginger. With good food, friendly service and a lovely setting, Zafran can be an occasion to remember.
